Good times, Good moments, Good celebrations come with Good food. India is a country of many rich cuisines traditionally. Since navratri is celebrated across the country in different styles and culture, with it also comes a variety of things to eat. From deep friend calorie dripping rich food to diabetically delicious sweets…here we bring to you a list of things you must eat this season.
There is a lot of good food to grab during the navratri time in the city. Traditional delicacies are usually rich in flavor and calories at the same time! But then again, festive time is the time to take liberty from calorie count and indulge in your taste buds. You can get a Navratri Special Thalis at Spice Water Trail in Delhi at M24, Gk1 Market. It is available from the 27th September 2011 till 06th October 2011.
Considering Ahmedabad comes alive during these nine nights of Navratri, restaurants and hotels cash in on the opportunity to create new things to attract food lovers. Traditional Gujarati thali remains a staple for all Ahmedavis, but in this festive season it would be great to relish delicacies like Lychee and Kiwi ki shikanjee, Kolkata veg rolls, Agra ki chaat, exotic fruit punches, to the famous Mumbai street food – masala pulao, ussal paav, bhajee pa!
Try a typical Gujarati or a Rajasthani vegetarian thali for a change. These cuisines taste deliciously divine. You may gorge on idlis and dosas after Navratri. But trying out something different is a must this festive season. You may visit Nikhil`s Family Restaurant in Anna Nagar West, Rajdhani in Aminjikarai or Royapattha for a sumptuous authentic Rajastahni/Gujarati meal.
Bangalore is a cosmopolitan city, no doubt but it hasn’t yet welcomed the idea of a multi-cuisine restaurant as much as it should have. There are non-south Indian food outlets for sure but Bangalore needs to have more of them. So check out Paushtik Veg Solution at Sarjapur Road, Bangalore-560034 or any of the Rajdhani outlets in the city for a delicious meal!
For all you foodies out there in Kolkata, trying something completely different will be a good idea. Hogging a plateful of aloo kabli and a thonga full of jhaal moori might be a good idea on a regular day, but having a Guajarati/ Rajasthan feast will be better, given the fact that Dandiya and Garba are traditional a Gujarati custom. So check out Haveli in Salt Lake or Teej in Middleton Street or Rajdhani in Manik Tala main road.
